Miki Rodriguez

This class explores traditional and non-traditional fiber techniques using common and uncommon materials. The premise of the class is to connect materials to fabric or paper surfaces using a variety of techniques. Some techniques include, stitching, fusing, stapling, knotting, painting and drilling. Among the variety of materials used, students will choose from wood, found objects, wire, cardboard, fabric scraps and papers. Students will have an opportunity to take risks and unblock their creative energies. Application possibilities are endless-quilts, handbags, pillow covers, book covers, etc. Participants will be asked to bring some of their own embellishments to personalize their work.
